Many parents who have lost a twin or a triplet struggle with mixed emotions: simultaneously sad for the baby they have lost and overjoyed with the baby or babies who have survived. There can be feelings of guilt in enjoying precious and loving moments with a surviving baby. Occasions such as birthdays and Christmas can be bittersweet, as can milestones like the baby’s first step or first word. Big life events such as starting school can be very emotional. It is good for parents to have a place to share these conflicting feelings with others who understand and have been there.
